Whether you want to make a delicious treat for a DD in your life, or you want to share a dessert with friends and family, we at DysDine encourage you to celebrate your loved ones this Valentine’s Day. Our blog will provide a few ideas for sweets beyond everyone’s favorite: pudding.
Desserts provide DDs with lots of options. Creamy, smooth fillings! Soft, decadent, moist cakes! Yum! Things to look out for are hard or crunchy shells/crusts, anything with carmel or any type of stickiness, and we want to stay way from nuts, sprinkles, hard chocolates, tough frozen fruits, crumbly cookies/cakes, and other tricky items that may appear in various desserts. Below are a few recipes that can spark your creativity!

Check out her custard, meringue, and pudding desert section for some more ideas, but use digression as some recipes contain chewy textures and are not NDD 1 friendly. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about how to modify a recipe!

NDD 2: Soft Mechanical Diet
We want to make sure that any cakes are very moist and do not crumble in the mouth. Paring drier cakes with sauces and cremes is a good approach.
